Event-related brain potentials (ERPs) were recorded from 14 normal subjects during a category verification task. Stimulus words were selected from 17 semantic categories (e.g. 'vegetables'). Half of the words were typical category members (e.g. 'carrot', 'spinach') and the other half were atypical (e.g. 'parsley', 'asparagus'). Subjects were required to(More)
The capacity of working memory has been suggested to differ among people and these differences affect performance in a wide variety of cognitive tasks. This study explored electrophysiological correlates of individual differences in working memory capacity by means of event-related potentials. Thirty-four healthy students performed two- and five-choice(More)
The directional emissivity of snow and ice surfaces in the 8 – 14 Am thermal infrared (TIR) atmospheric window was determined from spectral radiances obtained by field measurements using a portable Fourier transform infrared spectrometer in conjunction with snow pit work. The dependence of the directional emissivity on the surface snow type (grain size and(More)
For the validation of snow/ice products of the Advanced Earth Observing Satellite-II/Global Imager (ADEOS-II/GLI), several field campaigns were performed for various types of snow conditions with the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) and GLI overpasses at four sites in Alaska and eastern Hokkaido, Japan from 2001 to 2005. The target(More)

S ince the earliest meteorological satellites were sent into orbit in the 1960s, satellite re mote sensing has been the vital means to monitor clouds and precipitation uniformly across the Earth. Present-day spaceborne remote sensors have great variety in terms of spec tral range (visible, infrared, and microwave) and measuring principle (active and(More)
The present study investigated the redundancy gain in discrimination of colored lights. Subjects were requested to discriminate a target from 34 nontarget lights differing from the target in luminance, hue, or both, and RTs were recorded. Experimental variables were the complexity of stimulus pattern and the eccentricity of the target in visual angle. The(More)
This study compared vestibular and dynamic visual acuity in 19 adult athletes with deafness participating in Deaflympics to those of 25 young adults with normal hearing. Balance capability was evaluated using a one-leg standing test with eyes open and stabilometry. Caloric tests and vestibular evoked myogenic potential tests were conducted to test(More)
CONCLUSIONS Our study revealed that VEMPs in responses to clicks and 500 Hz STB were abnormal in 25% of athletes with congenital profound sensorineural hearing loss for the Deaf Olympic Games. These results confirm that a part of deaf athletes with congenital vestibular failure is well compensated for higher level sport activities. OBJECTIVES The aim of(More)
